Honor View 10 delivers revolutionary mobile AI and ultimate performance, Zhao
told reporters here.
"Honor View 10 marks the beginning of a new AI era, enabling a productive,
entertaining and fun lifestyle for users," he added.
"The powerful Kirin 970 chipsets which include a Neural-Network Processing
Unit (NPU) is at the heart of Honor View 10's extreme performance. It powers a
series of new AI applications which recognise different scenes when taking
photos, translates different languages in real-time even without an Internet
connection and understand user's behaviours and optimises the phone's
performance," Zhao added.
The new Kirin 970 features an octa-core ARM Cortex CPU and a Mali-G72 12-core
GPU. Honor View 10 has a special 'Gaming Suite' which significantly increases
performance of mobile games.
The 3,750mAh battery and Honor SuperCharge technology make Honor View 10 ideal
for gamers and heavy users. Honor SuperCharge claims to charge the battery to
50 per cent in just 30 minutes while operating at a low temperature and
Honor View 10 is equipped with a high-definition 16MP + 20MP dual-lens camera
with F/1.8 wide aperture and 2-in-1 PDAF automatic focusing, enabling users to
take professional photos.
Zhao said that Honor is the top smartphone e-brand in China in 2017 in terms of
sales performance. The company also announced a new global growth strategy that
aims to make Honor a top-three smartphone brand worldwide in five years.
Honor also announced its Structured Light and Sync Play technologies which
enhance facial recognition and music playback, respectively.
